GAMING BUSINESS - From Valve Co-Founder

"Watch Gabe Newell Talk For An Hour About Making Video Games" by Kirk Hamilton, Kotaku 1/31/2013

Earlier this week, Valve co-founder Gabe Newell gave a talk at University of Texas at Austin about the business and art of making video games.  Today, the school has posted a full video of one of the talks.

Sit back, relax, and watch one of gaming's visionaries talk about how he does what he does, and how his company operates.


COMMENT:  When Steam first 'hit the streets' back when Half-Life came out, I and many others, ranted about it.  That was because you actually had to be online to run a Steam game EVEN FOR SINGLE-PLAYER games.

Finally, Valve/Steam listened to what users were saying and Steam now has an Off-Line Mode.  So we can play Seam games WITHOUT being online.
